Description After a 'try out' season in Sydney Hate comes to Melbourne. Unusually small-scale, highly concentrated family drama by Stephen Sewell, showing the effects of political and patriarchal power on the family but also on the body politic. Very spare, stylised production but acted in highly realistic style.
